Abstract.--Juturnia, a new genus composed of three species from the Rio Grande region of southwestern North America, is described. Two of these species were previously placed in the genus Durangonella while the third, J. tularosae, is described herein. Juturnia is shown to be a monophyletic subunit of the gastropod subfamily Cochliopinae based on phylogenetic analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences and an uniquely shared morphological character (within the subfamily), the presence of a single non-glandular lobe on the inner edge of the penis. Our phylogenetic hypothesis indicates that Juturnia is most closely related to North American brackish-coastal taxa, and we conjecture that progenitors of this genus penetrated inland along the Tertiary drainages which headed along eastern flanks of Laramide uplifts and flowed to the Gulf of Mexico. Subsequent vicariance of congeners in southeastern New Mexico is attributed to development of the Pecos depression, and inception of the drainage divide between the Rio Grande Rift and southern Great Plains.
While various hypotheses have been proposed to explain the distributions of aquatic biota in the Rio Grande region of southwestern North America, these have been hampered by a paucity of pertinent phylog- enies (Smith & Miller 1986). Cochliopinid (= littoridinid) gastropods form a diverse component of this biota and also are of interest because of their high level of local endemism (Taylor 1966, 1987). Recent phylogenetic reconstructions based on analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequences suggest that this fauna includes several lineages derived from marine or brackish water coastal progenitors (Liu et al. 2001), and mat inland snail distributions reflect vicariant events which preceded establishment of modern regional topography (Hershler et al. 1999, 2002). Herein, we describe a newly recognized monophyletic group of coch-
liopinids whose distribution, habitat, and systematic relationships provide an additional perspective on the biogeographic history of this region, Materials and Methods This report primarily is based on material reposited in the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution (USNM). Relevant type material from the Natural History Museum, London (BMNH) also was studied. Specimens of the new species were relaxed in the field with menthol crystals, and then fixed in dilute formalin (10% of stock solution) and preserved in 70% ethanol. Prior to dissection, shells were removed from animals by soaking in dilute hydrochloric acid. Animals were dissected using a WILD M8 research
microscope and drawings were made with the aid of a camera lucida attachment. Live specimens were studied for description of head-foot and penis. Methods of preparation of material for scanning electron microscopy are of Hershler (1998). Counts of radular cusps and tooth rows were determined from scanning electron images. Terminology of anatomical features follows Hershler (2001) and character state delineations are from Hershler & Ponder (1998). Institutional abbreviations follow Leviton et al. (1985). Partial sequences of the mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (mtCOI) gene were obtained from two specimens of the new species using methods of Liu et al. (2001) (Genbank accession number AF474371). Sequences were utilized for phylogenetic analysis along with previously analyzed mtCOI sequences of members of cochliopine sub-clades III, IV and V (Liu et al. 2001; also see Hershler et al. 1999), which represent the portion of the subfamily topology that contained previously described species which we allocate herein to Juturnia. In this earlier analysis, sub-clade V was sister to the lineage containing species of Juturnia and thus we used its most basal member (Mexipyrgus carranzae) for rooting in the current study. Analyses were conducted using the maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and minimal evolution options of PAUP*4.0 (Swofford 2000) following Liu et al. (2001). Bootstrapping (Felsenstein 1985) with 1000 replications was performed to assess branch support on the resulting trees. Timing of branching events was estimated using the fossil-based calibration for mtDNA third position transitions (3--4% per My) and transversions (0.42% per My) for the marine gastropod genus Nucella (Collins et al. 1996) and may be accurate only to the extent that evolutionary rates are comparable among mitochondrial genes and among muricid and cochliopinid gastropods.

Spermathecal duct narrow to medium width, opening a little behind brood pouch opening. Remarks.--The two previously described species that we allocate to Juturnia most recently were placed in the genus Durangonella (Hershler 2001). Durangonella Morrison, 1945 was erected for four species from central Mexico which have smooth, elongate-conic shells. Morrison (1945) redescribed the type species, Hydrobia seemani Fraunfeld, 1863, and described the other three congeners from empty shells. Morrison presented but few details of soft parts, based on study of dried material of the type species, and the only anatomical criterion by which he distinguished Durangonella from closely similar Tryonia was its "different pattern" of penial ornament (Morrison 1945:18-19). A fifth species of Durangonella (D. coahuilae) subsequently was described from Chihuahuan Desert shells (Taylor 1966) and a sixth congener (D. kosteri), from the Pecos River basin, recently was transferred to the genus (Hershler 2001). The two northern congeners (D. coahuilae, D. kosteri) have been shown to be members of the hydrobiid subfamily Cochliopinae, within which they form a distinct group united by an unique suite of anatomical character-states (Hershler 2001). They also have been shown to form a well supported cochliopine sub-clade based on mtDNA sequences (Liu et al. 2001). However, trenchant characterization of Durangonella has been prevented by a paucity of information for southern congeners, none of which has been further studied since Morrison's (1945) work. The type species of Durangonella, Hydrobia seemani Frauenfeld, 1863, was de-

scribed from shells collected in "Durango, N.W. Mexico" by Berthold Seemann during his tenure as naturalist aboard the H.M.S. Herald. Presumably Seeman made this collection in 1849 or 1850 when he left the vessel, ventured inland from the Pacific Coast, and visited the city of Durango and nearby areas. However, neither his expedition narrative (Seeman 1853) nor his resulting botanical monograph (Seeman 1852-7) mention this collection. Frauenfeld (1863:1025; English translation in Morrison 1945:19) briefly described the shell of this species, emphasizing its slender and conical shape, deep suture, small aperture, and simple lip; and subsequently illustrated a specimen (Frauenfeld 1865, fig. 8). Morrison (1945) redescribed this species from specimens that botanist Edward Palmer collected (probably in 1896 fide USNM accession papers; and field itinerary [McVaugh 1956]) from a spring that then provided the domestic water supply to Durango City. Shells of this sample (USNM 251826, Fig. la)
closely resemble syntypes of H. seemani (Fig. lb) and are presumed by us to be conspecific, although they are not assuredly topotypes as Morrison (1945:19) claimed. Recently we examined rehydrated specimens from USNM 251826 and determined that Morrison's (1945, fig. 5) description was in error as the male penes do not have simple lobes but instead are ornamented with glandular papillae (Fig. 2). We also observed in dissection that the female spermathecal duct (= sperm tube) of these snails opens a little in front of the posterior wall of the pallial cavity which, together with penial morphology, indicates that this snail belongs to the genus Tryonia (fide Hershler 2001). This is consistent with ongoing field surveys in the Durango region which have yielded snails with Tryonia-like anatomy (Hershler unpublished). Based on these new observations (made subsequent to the recent synopsis of Durangonella; Hershler 2001), we conclude that Durangonella Morrison, 1945 (type

Abbreviations--Pa, terminal papilla; PI, penial lobe. species, Hydrobia seemani) is a junior subjective synonym of Tryonia Stimpson, 1865. Accordingly, we have erected a new genus (Juturnia) for the two species from the northern Chihuahuan Desert and Pecos River basin which previously were assigned to Durangonella, but which are well-differentiated from Tryonia and other cochliopine genera. The three other species of Durangonella (all from central Mexico) cannot confidently be assigned to genus because they are known only from shells and because the regional hydrobiid fauna remains poorly known. These species are "Durangonella" dugesiana Morrison, 1945 (type locality, Andocutin, Guanajuato; fide Taylor 1966); "D." mariae Morrison, 1945 (one meter below the present surface of the dry bed of the lake at Tlahuac, 20 kilometers east of Xochimilco, Distrito Federal); and "D." pilsbryi Morrison, 1945 (Paso del Rio, Colima). The shells of Juturnia broadly overlap in size, shape, and sculptural features with those of several other epigean cochliopines of southwestern North America (Eremopyrgus, Littoridinops, Pseudotryonia, Tryonia). Among these taxa Juturnia shares with Littoridinops and Pseudotryonia an elongate sperm duct which opens to the spermathecal duct in the posterior pallial cavity.
(Other similar-shelled regional cochliopines have a coiled sperm duct positioned entirely behind the posterior wall of the pallial cavity; Hershler 2001.) Juturnia differs from these two genera and all other members of subfamily in having a single, non-glandular lobe on the inner edge of the penis, which may be a synapomorphy for the genus. Juturnia is further distinguished from other regional cochliopines by its sub-globular seminal receptacle, weakly coiled renal oviduct, and storage of sperm in the coiled oviduct. Our phylogenetic analyses of mtCOI sequences (all of which resulted in the same tree topology) provided good (73%) support for monophyly of Juturnia (Fig. 3). Within this topology Juturnia was placed within a poorly supported clade that also contained two other genera which have an elongate sperm duct {Littoridinops, Spurwinkia) and Pyrgophorus, which has a coiled sperm duct. Distribution.--Lower Rio Grande region (Fig. 4). Juturnia kosteri is distributed along the lower Pecos River, a major tributary to the lower Rio Grande. Juturnia coahuilae lives in the Cuatro Cienegas basin (Coahuila, Mexico), whose northeast portion drains to the headwater region of the Rio Salado (Minckley 1969), which also is tributary to the lower Rio Grande. Juturnia tularosae (described below) lives in a hydrographically closed basin in the southern Rio Grande rift. Habitat.--Spring-fed water bodies, typically consisting of headsprings and their stream outflows. Juturnia coahuilae also lives in Laguna Grande, the terminus of a spring-fed drainage system (Hershler 1985). Waters inhabited by congeners range from near freshwater to hypersaline (e.g., Laguna Grande [=Laguna Salada], 309 g/1 Total dissolved solids; Minckley & Cole 1968). Snails are benthic and typically live in soft sediments. Etymology.--From N. Latin Juturna, the Roman goddess of wells and springs. Gender feminine.

from Salt Creek, in a canyon ca. 6.4 km above Range Road 316, Tularosa basin, Sierra County, New Mexico, Township 12S, Range 6E, NE 1/4 section 3 (USNM 894738). Distribution and habitat.--Juturnia tularosae apparently is endemic to Salt Creek (Meinzer & Hare 1915, pi. VIIIC), a major drainage of the northern Tularosa basin which heads in the San Andres and Oscura
ranges and is supported on the basin floor by the discharge of Salt Springs. A field survey during March, 2001 indicated that snails were restricted to a central reach of Salt Creek, extending from a canyon ca. 6.4 km north of Range Road 316 to ca. 0.5 km downfiow from this road. The northern end of the snail range coincides with a waterfall (ca. 2 m high) at the head of this canyon. During recent years (1995--1999) dis-

Abbreviations-- Pr, prostate gland; Pvd, pallial vas deferens; Vvd, visceral vas deferens. charge of Salt Creek in the vicinity of the type locality of J. tularosae averaged 32.28 liters/second (Ortiz & Lang 1996, Ortiz et al. 1997, 1998, 1999). During this time period the stream has been subject to periodic flooding, usually during the summer, with a maximum discharge of 1982.18 liters/second. Water temperature varied from 7.033.5°C; dissolved oxygen was typically high, with an average of 9.29 mg/liter; and pH was fairly constant, with an average of 8.07. Salt Creek is saline and both alkali(Na and K) and chloride-rich. These water quality data are similar to those of earlier studies of Salt Creek (Meinzer & Hare 1915, Miller & Echelle 1975, Stockwell & Mulvey 1998). Etymology.--A geographical name referring to endemism of this snail in Tularosa basin, southeast New Mexico. Remarks.--This species, together with J. kosteri, is distinguished from J. coahuilae by its much broader shell (compare Figs. 5, 6 with Hershler 1985, fig. 33), less elongate bursa copulatrix, and more anteriorly positioned seminal receptacle (compare Fig. 11 with Hershler 1985, fig. 36). Our mtCOIbased tree (Fig. 3) was consistent with morphology in that the former two species

Abbreviations--Pa, terminal papilla; Pd, penial duct; PI, penial lobe. formed a strongly supported (97%) subclade. In addition to the characters listed above (see Diagnosis) Juturnia tularosae differs from J. kosteri by the more deeply indented dorsal edge of the central radular teeth (compare Fig. 8A with Hershler 2001, fig. 12A), squatter shape of prostate gland, very short pallial extension of the female sperm duct, papilla-like opening of the brood pouch, and occasional pigment on the bursa copulatrix (compare Fig. 11 with Hershler 2001, fig. 13). Discussion The phylogenetic analysis of mtCOI sequences (Fig. 3) indicates that monophyletic Juturnia is more closely related to brackish water cochliopines confined to the western Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico margins (Littoridinops, Pyrgophorus, Spurwinkia) than to other taxa of southwestern North America (Eremopyrgus, Mexipyrgus, Tryonia) and is consistent with an origin associated with inland invasion by Gulf Coastal ancestors. These sequence data also suggest

that divergence of Juturnia occurred 4.3-- 14.9 Ma (Miocene-early Pliocene) and thus preceded assembly of the modern Rio Grande drainage, which was not completed until its master stream breached the Lake Cabeza de Vaca complex (sensu Strain 1966) in northeastern Chihuahua and northwestern Texas ca. 2.5-2.0 Ma (Gustavson 1991, Mack 1997, 2001) and subsequently penetrated to the sea. We conjecture that coastal progenitors did not penetrate inland through the Rio Grande but instead along the drainages which headed on the flanks of
Laramide uplifts (e.g., Rocky Mountains, Sierra Madre Orientate; Winker 1982, Galloway et al. 1991) and flowed east and southeast to the Texas Gulf Coast during the early-mid Tertiary (Thomas 1972, Belcher 1975, Belcher & Galloway 1977, Gather 1991, Christiansen & Yeats 1992). Note that the Rio Grande region has had a complex biogeographic history with respect to the Gulf of Mexico and other venues of inland transport of marine biota, which may have ranged from stranding of 'relicts' in conjunction with recession of Cretaceous
seas (Bowman 1981, Holsinger 1986) to Quaternary aerial dispersal on or in birds (Bachuber & McClellan 1977), also may have occurred. Progenitors may have been euryhaline and capable of penetrating into freshwater environments (fide Hershler et al. 2002). Alternatively, ancestral snails may have been salt dependent in which case their inland dispersal was more tightly constrained by water chemistry. Taylor (1985:318-319) speculated that the Pecos River, which flows through a region having a long history of evaporite dissolution (Bachman 1976) and is highly mineralized along portions of its length (Gustavson & Finley 1985), functioned as an early saline conduit for coastal molluscan colonists into this region. Although we disagree with aspects of this interpretation of Pecos River history (see below), we note that the Rio Salado (to which J. coahuilae is endemic) also contributes a large amount of salt to the Rio Grande (Miyamoto et al. 1995) derived in part from dissolution of (Cretaceous) evaporites (Back et al. 1977, Lesser & Lesser 1988) and thus may have had a long brackish-saline history. (This river may date to the Paleocene; Galloway et al. 1991:302.) Note that Assiminea pecos, a member of a salt-adapted gastropod genus typically associated with coastal margins (Abbott 1958), is distributed (together with Juturnia) in upper segments of the Pecos River and Rio Salado basins (Taylor 1987), which further implies a close historical relationship between these areas and saline habitats. We attribute vicariance of the Juturnia sub-clade in southeastern New Mexico (J. kosteri and J. tularosae) to the well documented capture of segments of the old drainage system which extended from the southern Rocky Mountains across the southern High Plains (Plummer 1933, fig. 51 A) by the Pecos depression (fide Horberg 1949), which formed through dissolution of bedded Permian salt followed by regional subsidence (Gustavson & Finley 1985,
Gustavson & Winkler 1988). The closely proximate occurrence of marine-like biota in Great Plains drainage just east of the Pecos divide (Creel 1964) is congruent with this hypothesis. The timing of drainage diversion has not been well established, but presumably occurred following deposition of the regionally widespread Ogallala Formation, which ended ca. 3.5-5 Ma (Hawley 1993 a). These dates conform well to our mtDNA evidence, which suggests that divergence occurred 4.2-5.9 Ma. Taylor (1985) suggested that regional isolation of other marine-like mollusks was effected by inception of the southern reach of the freshwater Rio Grande in the Pleistocene, which disrupted and diluted an ancestral saline Pecos River (through which marine colonists dispersed). This assumes that the Pecos River was through-flowing to the Gulf prior to its integration with the Rio Grande and is supported by provenance interpretations of gravels on the Edwards Plateau and the lower Rio Grande (Thomas 1972, Belcher 1975). However, an analysis of river meander patterns suggests that the lower Pecos River early headed on the Edwards Plateau and did not integrate with the Pecos depression (where snails are endemic) until ca. 0.6 Ma, following incision of the Pecos Canyon through headward erosion (Amsbury & Dietrich 1987, Amsbury & Hayward 1999; also see Hills 1984:264). The occurrence of a fossil herring in the Gatuna Formation in southeastern New Mexico (Miller 1982), whose age is bracketed at 13-0.5 Ma (Powers & Holt 1993), suggests that marine biota may have been present in the region well prior to integration of the Pecos River drainage in conformance with our hypothesis. We agree with Taylor (1985) that marine-like Pleistocene gastropods from Terrell County, Texas (Andrews 1977:92,98,180) could have dispersed into this region along the ancestral lower Pecos River, however we attribute the Pleistocene occurrence of the brackish-water clam Rangia cuneata in the Pecos depression (Metcalf 1980, Taylor 1985, fig.
30) to dispersal along the same drainage system that was invaded by Juturnia progenitors. Subsequent vicariance of J. tularosae estimated at 2.2-3.0 Ma (based on third position transitions only as there were no transversion changes at this position) is enigmatic in that geologic evidence suggests that Tularosa basin was endorheic during the Pleistocene and opened not to the east but to the south during the late Pliocene (5-2 Ma), when it served as a periodic distributary of the ancestral upper Rio Grande (Mack et al. 1996, 1997, Mack 1999). (Although pluvial Lake Otero [fide Herrick 1904] flooded Tularosa basin up to 1250 m elevation during its late Pleistocene highstand, it never breached its basin [Kottlowski 1958, Miller 1981, Hawley 1993b, Pittenger & Springer 1999].) Any prior historical drainage relationship between this area and the Pecos region presumably was disrupted by late Tertiary extensional faulting, but is not well constrained as Tularosa basin, which consists of two adjacent deeply incised half-grabens (Lozinsky & Bauer 1991, Adams & Keller 1994), is bounded by mountain blocks which have had long uplift histories (Kelley & Chapin 1997) extending into the Quaternary (Machette 1987). The close relationship implied by our data between this component of the Rio Grande Rift and the southern Great Plains is paralleled by allozymic evidence of regional pupfishes (Echelle & Echelle 1992) and suggests a need for further study of the functionality of the regional drainage divide during the late Neogene.
